Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer has suddenly stopped printing envelopes

I have been able to print envelopes in the past. Now it won't print them. I use MSOffice 2000. I have tried printing on regular paper. The printer feeds envelopes and paper properly, sounds as though it is printing, yet everything comes out blank! I have uninstalled and reinstalled both MSOffice and Lexmark X5150 All-In-One to no avail.

    I am having the same problem with my X5150. Sounds like it is printing but everything comes out blank. I have reinstalled my printer also and tried printing with an application called fine print but all to no avail.

    same problem, prints documents fine but no envelopes???? I'm ready to heave the blasted pos out the window. Had an HP that quit and so I set this Lexmark up as a replacement and no envelopes....no wait ONE envelope, I've seriously spent 2+ hours and am ashamed to say I've been outsmarted by a printer!

    Same problem as other listed. The printer sounds like it is printing fine, but it does not print the document on the paper. The paper is blank. Any solution?

Just fixed it thanks to Lloyd at Lexmark.com Go to Technical Support > LIVE CHAT. To print envelopes all I needed was to check the print in "Black" only button. Under Quality make sure the Print Color images in Black box is checked, select Apply and OK.

I printed an envelope using word and now my printer won't print regular papers from my web sites.


Try opening the door in the back of the printer and return the lever that switches between envelopes and paper back to the original position.

I can't get anything to print from tray 1, the manual feed. I'm trying to print envelopes and they keep printing on 8.5x11 paper from tray 2. If I put envelopes in tray 2 it won't print


Have you already tried this? After you click print and select your printer, click properites and select your paper from 8.5x11 to Envelope.

Do I need a special paper for this printer?


no not necessarily. I suggest you align your printer tray in such a way that it will instantly insert the paper and print it successfully. Otherwise the problem is maybe the unit itself or the drivers..

Ink spots and blurring on envelopes - no problems with regular paper on hp Deskjet 1280


For envelopes and other special paper types, you have to tell the printer what kind of paper you are using so that it can adjust its print settings. In the printer properties, set the paper type to envelope or thick paper and try printing again.

How do you print envelopes on the Canon Pixma iP4600. What feeder do you put the envelope in? I need to print on square envelope 155mm x155mm and don't want the envelope to get creased.


I print envelopes a lot for my business.
What I do is I use the regular paper feed, and I open the flap on the envelope so that it's flatter. Simply slide the paper guide to adjust to the size of the envelope.
Also, typically the orientation for printing envelopes is sideways. You put the left edge of the envelope in the printer first. If you are unsure of the orientation, simply do your first print on plain paper. Then you'll know how to insert the envelope.

Printing Envelopes


There is a workaround for this problem by tricking the printer.
The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11. I hope this helps.

My HP LaserJet 4200 prints fine from tray 2, but will NOT print envelopes from tray 1. It WILL print on regular paper from tray 1, but will not print envelopes. What gives? I've already rebooted the


Are there settings on the control panel of your printer?
Is the tray 1 the MP tray? (The one that flips towards you)
If so, can you change the settings of the Tray 1 to Envelope on the control panel?

I hope this helps.

PIXMA 830 Smudges when printing envelopes


On my MP780, be careful to select the appropriate paper type; I was getting black smudges on the left side of my envelopes until I explicitly set that my paper type was "envelope" from "plain paper".  
Another idea is to adjust the "ink drying wait time" to a higher level.
